In The Woods

On the Porch

Have you ever been in a difficult situation and you have cried out for help, waited on a word of encouragement and felt despair attempting to wash your heart in endless tears?  In my Monday morning quiet time, this verse resonated with my heart.  I found this picture of my husband. It brought a smile to my heart so just for fun, I created this graphic and decided to share it with our readers. Just in case you have ever felt this way. You are not alone.

 

 

 

Heaven is in Your Future

My Take

Divoran Lites

 

 

1 Corinthians 13:12 Paraphrase

Comforter-Heaven is in your Future

You do not see things clearly. You’re squinting in a fog, peeking into a smoky mirror. It won’t be long, though until everything clears up. When you see the Kingdom of Heaven you will know Me as thoroughly as I now know you. You will see with your spirit. Wondrous things you have seen on earth will be as nothing to you.

Until that completeness comes you have four things to do. One, trust steadily in Me; two, constantly hope for the best; and three stop considering the worst that could happen; four, love with all your heart and with all My power.

Trying to imagine what old age or Heaven will be like is the same as worrying about the future. Faith, hope, and love is your focus now. You can never understand until you get there, so don’t dwell on it. It’s a promise that will come true and that’s all you need to know.

Faith, hope, and charity. And what is charity? It is goodwill toward others. Liberal giving of all kinds. Mercy. Minimal judgment. I will give you plenty of people to love and help. Your love will not come out of your need, but out of the power of My Holy Spirit who is your Helper.

Live now as you did under your parents’ protection, never worrying about the future. Whether earthly parents were good or bad really makes no difference, though. I have always been the one who looked after you and I always will be.

Day 6

Restlessness

Psalms 139

 

 

Beloved,

You are one of a kind. I designed you and hand-knit you in your mother’s womb.

You were born human, and therefore, you have many traits and experiences in common with all humanity.

One, you need other humans.

Two, you need food, water, and shelter.

Three, you need something to occupy your body, heart, and soul.

The most outstanding need you have, is Me.

I Am the all-powerful, Father God, and because I now keep you in the palm of my hand, you are able to communicate with me any time, any way you can.

 

“Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in thee.”

St. Augustine

Day Three

God’s Glory

Philippians 1:9

 

 

Beloved,

Immerse yourself in My glory.

Love others as you love yourself,

Even better, love them as I love you:

Unconditionally.

I give you Godly discernment to love wisely.

That is how to make love last.

Let Me into your thoughts so I may guide you.

Let Me show you how to live

A clean and organized life.

When you spend time with Me,

You continually reap bountiful fruits from your soul.

That’s when your Savior is most likely to become

Savior of the people you know.

 

 

 

Where Do I Go To Cry

22 Aug

From My Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

                                      
                                    Life presents many challenges-
                                    When confronted, I honestly try,
                                    But when bad things happen,and they surely do,
                                    Where do I go to cry?
                                    It isn’t gender related,
                                    nor is it ruled by a calendar page.
                                    Bad things happen to good people
                                    everywhere,
                                    Regardless of sex or age.

 

                                   Emotional tears are the body’s way
                                   of reducing stress-
                                   So let those tears flow
                                   in times of sadness… or happiness.
                               
                                  Mathew 5:4
                                  “Blessed are they that mourn,
                                  for they shall be comforted.”
                                  Psalm 30
                                  “Weeping may endure for a night,
                                  but joy comes in the morning.”
